The Keepsake

A010

Greg Neville, The Keepsake, 2013

The Keepsake is an old book found in a secondhand bookshop, published in 1830. It contains stories, memoirs and poems plus fifteen engravings. After 183  years, the book is suffering from old age, a veil of decay from foxing and chemical stains. The tissue interleaves create a softening and distancing effect, obscuring the engraving as though looking back through time.
